So charcoal mask is the newest hype in the beauty world! Almost every day we see those ad online where someone peeling off those charcoal masks of their face while pulling off those stubborn white heads, black heads and all the dirt and debris! To be honest I find those videos quite satisfying! ♥ But to tell the truth, you can achieve the “pulling off unwanted stuff” effect just the same with other things like gelatin or egg white. But the advantage of any ready-made pack or mask is you do not need any preparation there. Just take the amount from the tube and apply directly. These days have been busy, and hardly I find any time for taking care of myself. So, most of the times, I rely on store bought masks. Also the reputation of Korean skin care products helped me made my decision to give them a try.
Halloween is not as popular in Korea as it is in other countries, but some hagwons and schools here hold Halloween parties and festivals for the students. Halloween is one of my favorite school events to prepare for because there are a lot of activities that I can incorporate in my lessons. I’m going to share some of these activities.
Another very common question type of speaking exam question is expressing an opinion. For example, part six of the TOEIC speaking test shows a question on the screen. You then have 15 seconds to prepare, and 60 seconds to answer the question.

English Speaking Tip: Learn How to Keep the Conversation Going
I’m sure you’ve had this experience before. You’re at a party, at school, or at a family event. You’re talking to someone and then you start to have nothing to talk about.

I like to play armchair dream interpreter from time to time when my dreams are full of layers. I often tell myself after a particularly interesting dream that I should be writing these down for future reference. Partially because it would be interesting to look back on them and reflect. Perhaps also some of them could be reimagined as stories to write about. Or, by writing them down I can look back on them and recognize that, to no one but myself, they weren’t very interesting.
Last night’s dream could end up being of the latter quality if only because it features several recurring themes that are more interesting to me than to you because of their history and for their recurrence.
